Where was Pargo?

| 4 Comments | No TrackBacks

During his first stint with the Bulls a few years ago, Jannero Pargo often entered games like Monday night's loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder late and provided an offensive spark.

But with the Bulls struggling to score in the third quarter and early in the fourth, coach Vinny Del Negro opted to stay with his three-guard rotation of Derrick Rose, Kirk Hinrich and John Salmons -- even though they were struggling.

I would have used Pargo to see if he could hit a couple of three-pointers to get something started. That's why he's on the team, right?

Pargo, though, hasn't taken the court since Dec. 26, when he played two minutes against the New Orleans Hornets.

Before Tuesday night's game with the Charlotte Bobcats, I asked Del Negro if he planned to use Pargo.

"I'd like to, it's just that we're going with the nine-man rotation right now," Del Negro said. "It's just to find him any quality minutes. But he's a pro. He practices, he's prepared and he's a great. If I can give him an opportunity, I would love to do that, but I haven't found with the guys that we're playing a rotation that works."

First let me appologize for having posted a comment on the previous thread as anonymous inadvertantly, I don't often do that as Edgar can attest to. JJ although I am not exactly a Pargo fan I have to agree with you. Vinny also showed once again he has no grasp of game situation management. What was Rose doing inbounding the ball with 27 seconds left last night and Hinrich taking the shot when he was cold as dry ice all night? And not using his last 20 second time out to move the ball to the frontcourt with 17.5 seconds left was inexcusable. The couple seconds saved by noit having to take the ball the length of the court may have made a difference in how that last posession went. No way in a game that close do you go to the locker room with a time out in your pocket.

Guess what Vinny, if you're not winning, your rotation isn't working!
